    Default Chad Smith: whole year off

    I have it from someone in the Peppers camp that they're taking the whole year off. So this would be the perfect opportunity, the perfect year to record the third CF album.

    Also the perfect opportunity to take a year off and relax in Malibu with his wife and kids.

    More than likely this. They were all on break recently and they were able to record a Satriani solo album instead of Chickenfoot. Just doesn't seem to be a priority.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Who would be hanging in Malibu? Not Sam. And Chad, well let's just say he has kids all over the place, to see his kids he has to travel.

    We can hope this is a good opening for CF. Chad seems to make great use of his time. It's really up to Sam.

    Both Satch and Sam have said they want to do it ASAP, but my worry is will Sammy have enough “creative spark” in him.
    He’s just wrapped up The Circle album which is supposedly all originals, and we aren’t sure if the writing is up to scratch yet. It could suck for all we know. Let’s hope not.

    I worked for about 10-12 years straight one stretch of my early life. No vacation or back to back days off most holidays too. Enjoy it Chad.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    Satch is playing India, Australia later this year. He maintains a full schedule, pretty much.

    Satch is a multi-tasker and a creative beast. So is Chad for that matter. If Sam calls for another CF album (yes please) then both Chad and Satch will make it happen sooner than later.

    Satch also likes to get paid. He doesn't have "go to hell" money like Sam and Chad do. He's never hit it super big with his music or outside venture like Sam's tequila.

    He's well off by most of our standards, but unless he's cool with not living like a rock star, he probably needs to be working. And I'm sure he loves it as well.
    I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

    I doubt Satch is wealthy enough to sit back and rest on his laurels. I've done tax returns for guys that you would think are stars, and it is a shock how little they make. Most musicians don't make shit.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    True but I think there's a difference between a guy like Satch, and some session guy. Satch's name is on the marquee wherever he plays - he's not just a guitar player, he's the band leader. He takes the lion's share of the revenue of any gig he plays. That's why his net worth is above 10M.
